The Kansas City Star editorial board blasted Sen. Roy Blunt and Senator-elect Josh Hawley for their contradicting stance on healthcare.

In addition, the newspaper blasted the entire GOP for trying to save a program they worked so hard to gut. Republicans voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act over 70 times over the course of 8 years, without offering a replacement.

GOP officials are working frantically behind the scenes to try to keep the president on script at the rally, worried that he will use the forum to attack Kemp and other state GOP officials who have resisted his pressure, according to a person familiar with the discussions," The Washington Post reported Saturday.
